2020 Condrieu

Lionel Faury
Discount Eligible $69.00
SOLD OUT

Viognier? No, thanks. Condrieu? Ah, okay, you’ve got my attention. Faury’s Condrieu? Well, why didn’t you say so in the first place? Fill ’er up! Much as one could argue that Raveneau does not make Chardonnay, but rather Chablis, I would say that Faury does not make Viognier, but rather one hell of a Condrieu, replete with huge apricot and peach aromas and a fresh, regal palate.

Sampling wine out of the barrel.

When buying red Burgundy, I think we should remember:

1. Big wines do not age better than light wine.
2. A so-called great vintage at the outset does not guarantee a great vintage for the duration.
3. A so-called off vintage at the outset does not mean the wines do not have a brilliant future ahead of them.
4. Red Burgundy should not taste like Guigal Côte-Rôtie, even if most wine writers wish it would.
5. Don’t follow leaders; watch yer parking meters.
